Holly Robinson Peete Confirms Donald Trump Called Her The N-Word On Celebrity Apprentice – Perez Hilton
Do we actually want any extra affirmation that Donald Trump is a racist???
We’re speaking concerning the man who entered politics by claiming Barack Obama wasn’t actually born within the US and kicked off his presidential marketing campaign by calling Mexican immigrants rapists. The person who took out a full web page advert to name for the demise penalty of the later exonerated Central Park 5. The proof has at all times been PRETTY CLEAR.
However if you happen to want one other instance for the lengthy checklist of racist acts, look no additional than Holly Robinson Peete. There have lengthy been rumors of repulsive habits behind the scenes of The Apprentice, however Peete herself was sufferer to it when she was a finalist on the third season of Celeb Apprentice.
Showing on SiriusXM’s The Karen Hunter Present this week, the actress defined that she was satisfied to do the present by producer Mark Burnett, who stated it could assist elevate funds for her charity work. (It was approach again within the mid-2000s, lengthy earlier than Trump turned the face of Birtherism, or else she wouldn’t have agreed.) She recalled:
“It was a really fascinating expertise … I discovered him to be sort of piggish and bullish and stuff, however I didn’t discover him to be simply this — who he’s now. I didn’t see that. So, I believe the mixture of energy and corruption and all that stuff simply made him go to that subsequent degree.”
In regards to the violent language directed in the direction of her, she stated:
“Shortly after the finale, rumors began going round that he had tossed out an N-word in referring to me. And I used to be like, ‘huh?’ After which when the producer informed me when it occurred through the finale, I bear in mind the second. I wasn’t in earshot, however I might see them deciding between me and Bret Michaels.”
The 21 Soar Road alum continued:
“There was a second the place he was speaking with producers they usually’re actually animated and that was once I heard that he stated ‘they need the N-word to win.’ As a result of I suppose the community wished me to win or me to be chosen, and Trump wished Bret. And the quote was he ‘wished the N-word to win.’”
(It’s been stated earlier than, however it’s additionally fairly terrible that NBC saved working with this man… if they’d minimize ties with him over this egregious habits, would we be coping with a President Trump right this moment???)
Holly might not have heard the slur for herself, however it feels like she was crammed in by somebody within the know, an unnamed producer. As we all know, Burnett himself has been reluctant to interrupt contracts by giving any b-roll of the present to the press.
(Although some staffers have come forward to disclose how poor Trump’s enterprise actually was when the present started — and the way it was the magic of actuality TV modifying and their very own manufacturing values that bought him as so profitable to the nation.)
As for why she hadn’t come ahead about it till now, she frankly didn’t assume it could make a distinction! She defined:
“I heard it and you realize, how might anyone consider that he wouldn’t say one thing like that? I firmly consider he in all probability makes use of that language on a regular basis. After which by the point it type of began resurfacing, I didn’t even actually handle it an excessive amount of as a result of I felt like, what distinction is it going to make? Folks have accepted the issues that he stated which might be so vile about so many different folks, what distinction is it going to make if he stated that about me?”
She’s received some extent — once more, there was a LONG checklist of racist, misogynistic, abusive, and in any other case terrible acts to select from about Trump approach earlier than he ever ran for President. Hopefully after this election, the American folks won’t ever make such an apparent mistake once more!
